The Government funding supporting the service has recently ended, as part of the sector’s transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Other Yooralla services offered at the same location, 49 Sun Crescent in Sunshine, including ComTEC, will not be affected and will continue as normal.

Yooralla has supported the advancement of Assistive Technology and equipment in Australia for more than four decades.
